One of my favorite places to visit when I want to connect with nature is Arabia Mountain in Lithonia, Georgia. It is incredibly beautiful and serene. I’ve watched many sunsets from the mountain but, until recently, had not enjoyed a sunrise. A couple of weeks ago I decided it was time to experience a sunrise from my secret getaway. I looked up the sunrise time and set off into the crisp morning darkness. The mountain was beautiful as usual, though I had never seen it at that time of day. As I explored the mountain, I watched the sky slowly brighten as sunrise approached. Then at 7:47 the first sliver of the sun emerged from the horizon. For the next two minutes, I watched in awe as the perfectly round orange ball of fire made its morning debut.
